Homosexuals already have full marriage equality
By Bryan Fischer

Perhaps the most ridiculous thing about Judge Vaughn Walker's ruling in the Prop. 8 case is that he claimed to give homosexuals something they in fact already have: full marriage equality.

Homosexuals right now, as you are reading these words, have full marriage equality in America. There is no place in the United States where they don't.

They have exactly, precisely the same right to get married that every other American has: to a non-relative adult of the opposite sex.

Don't let homosexual apologists fool you here. They already have full marriage equality. Nobody anywhere has deprived of them of their right to marry. Period. They have exactly the same right to marry that you and I do, no more, no less.

What they want is not equal rights, but special rights. They want a special exemption carved out for them so that their sexually aberrant relationships can be recognized as marriages, an exemption we don't grant to folks who want to marry a son or a daughter, or a mother or a father, an uncle or an aunt, or a child.

All of those represent sexually aberrant relationships, with all their attendant physical and psychological dangers, and for that reason public policy does not permit such marriages.

So when we say two homosexuals cannot marry, we're not depriving them of marital rights any more than when we say the same thing to a pedophile. A pedophile has the same right to marry that every homosexual does the right to marry a non-relative adult member of the opposite sex.

So let's end this nonsense that somehow we aren't being fair to homosexuals. You can't get any more fair than seeing to it that the same rules apply to everybody.

What homosexuals want is not in fact marriage equality; they want validation for their sexually abnormal lifestyle. They want the rules that apply to everyone else to be bent and broken for them. That's the textbook definition of something unfair and unjust.

So when someone bloviates to you about how homosexuals don't have marriage equality, don't let them get away with it. It's time for us in the pro-family movement to stop being weenies about this. We, not they, are the voices of justice, fairness and rationality here.

Let's never forget that, and let's not allow anyone to push us around on this. It's time to stand tall, stand strong, and, as the Judeo-Christian tradition says, to be "steadfast, immovable, abounding in the work of the Lord" (1 Corinthians 15:58).
